    Essential Reading for any Church Planter or anyone involved in a Church Plant

    My copy is nearly worn out. The stories grab you and pull you in, the "coaching corner" inserts provide much-needed insight, and the reflective questions at the end help you to tailor the information to your particular context.

    Overall the book outlines how Mars Hill church in Seattle came to exist, and moved from a pathetic band of misfits to the cultural force that it is today. The book is carried along by the compelling and entertaining narrative that is Driscoll's experiences. The church planting statistics and insightful observations make it doubly valuable to anyone involved in church planting or renewal. Perhaps most valuable is the frank acknowledgement that Mark makes over and over in his book concerning his own mistakes and frailties,clearly he gives Jesus all the credit for anything successful at Mars Hill - for example - from the prelude: "In saying this, I am not boasting but rather pointing out the obvious miracle of God that we are a part of. In fact, my previous ministry experience would not fill up a three-by-five-inch notecard. Basically, we are a kite in God's hurricane, which is an absolute joke for reasons that will become apparent as you read through the book."

    Buy the book. Give it to your pastor. Where else would you find a chapter title like this? "Jesus our offering was $137 and I want to use it to buy bullets."

    Pick A Different Book

    Personally, I did not like this book. It was filled with many things I did not want to read about and I do not understand what much of the book has to do with the "reformation" of the church.
